Giving

"Then you shall say before the Lord your God, ‘I have removed the sacred portion out of my house, and moreover, I have given it to the Levite, the sojourner, the fatherless, and the widow, according to all your commandment that you have commanded me.'" - Deuteronomy 26:13

Christ-centered

Giving is primarily an act of worship to God. We offer what we have to Him with gratitude, acknowledging that everything we have comes from Him. Through this, we express trust and dependence in Him as our Provider and Sustainer.


I know, my God, that you test the heart and have pleasure in uprightness. In the uprightness of my heart I have freely offered all these things, and now I have seen your people, who are present here, offering freely and joyously to you. -  1 Chronicles 29:17


Gospel Driven

We also encouraged that our giving is used in the work of the Gospel within our fellowship, in our local community, and around the world. We are driven to give to support the spread of the Gospel. 


For they have gone out for the sake of the name, accepting nothing from the Gentiles. Therefore we ought to support people like these, that we may be fellow workers for the truth. 

- 3 John 7-8



Who is to give?

As you come to Him, a living stone rejected by men but

in the sight of God chosen and precious, you yourselves

like living stones are being built up as a spiritual house, 

to be a holy priesthood, to offer spiritual sacrifices

acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. - 1 Peter 2:4-5



God Expects His Church to give...

CHEERFULLY

Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. - 2 Corinthians 9:7


REGULARLY

On the first day of every week, each of you is to put something aside and store it up, as he may prosper, so that there will be no collecting when I come.- 1 Corinthians 16:2


SACRIFICIALLY

And he sat down opposite the treasury and watched the people putting money into the offering box. Many rich people put in large sums. And a poor widow came and put in two small copper coins, which make a penny. And he called his disciples to him and said to them, “Truly, I say to you, this poor widow has put in more than all those who are contributing to the offering box. For they all contributed out of their abundance, but she out of her poverty has put in everything she had, all she had to live on.” - Mark 12:41-44
